Time of Day is a voluntary plan for Oregon customers where participants pay two different prices for electricity depending on what time of day it’s used: Peak time is the most expensive. Off-Peak is least expensive. Prices are higher in the summer months (June-August) and lower in the non-summer months (September-May).
The Time of Day periods for this plan are:
- Peak: 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, except holidays
- Off-Peak: 9 p.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
- Peak: 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.; 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, except holidays.
- Off-Peak: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays
It is important to identify how much energy you are currently using and when you are using it. If your bill is less than $100 dollars a month, the Standard Residential plan may be your best option. If you can align your energy usage with lower cost periods, the Time of Day plan may be your best option. To see an estimate of your bill under the Time Of Day plan, log in to My Account or register to become a My Account user and click on “Compare Your Bills” then “Compare Rates.” See Schedule 5 for Time of Day pricing.
After electing to go on this plan, you can choose to go off at any time. Your service will change back to the Residential Standard plan. However, if you go off the Time Of Day plan, you cannot go back on it for twelve months. To change back to the Residential Standard Plan, call our Customer Service at 208-388-5575 or 1-800-488-6151, outside the Treasure Valley, weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
We will accept your application for the Time Of Day pricing plan at this time. The A/C Cool Credit program begins June 15. Customers can participate in both A/C Cool Credit and Time of Day.
